And the neutral is spliced to a #6 THHN tail. The homeowner said they would upgrade, but couldn't afford it right now. I changed the breaker to a 100 amp and spliced on a # 4 for the neutral. They claimed to have had the house inspected when they bought it a year ago, but I don't know any inspectors that could have missed this. Also the gfi in the back yard( 10ft. from the pool) was miswired to the load and when i pressed the test button, it still had 120 volts.

Doesn't look too bad with the cover on - save for the "temporary" power strip screwed to the wall. Since the insulation is stripped back so far on the breakers, you get a good look at the conductors. The lower wire on the top twin 20 sure looks like it could be aluminum. In a word - UGLY

Whats with the white wire on the twin breaker in the 2nd pic? 240v to the breaker under it? Do they make a handle tie for this 8^) Rod

It looks like a GFCI breaker with no load conductors to me.

Isn't the GFCI wired with the LINE conductors coming into the LOAD terminals?

That might be a problem...
